Thirty-nine students from twenty-two different undergraduate and graduate programs were selected as recipients of The Griffith Insurance Education Foundation’s 2015 scholarship offerings. This past year’s scholarship funds totaled $106,500 and allowed these students to continue advancing their education in preparation for future careers in risk management and insurance.

These scholarships support The Griffith Foundation’s efforts to inspire students to continue pursuing risk management and insurance careers, and are offered biannually. In addition to awarding its own scholarship funds, The Griffith Foundation also administers scholarships on behalf of insurance industry organizations. For example, each year, $42,000 is awarded to six students through the Westfield Insurance and Westfield Agents Association (WAA) Scholarships.

I am now able to concentrate on what is important to me, which is education,” said Sarah Vachon, a student at Ball State University. “Thanks to the financial generosity of the Westfield and WAA scholarship, I have gotten one step closer to my goal.”
